Sales in trade kept declining – but at a slower pace

In October–December, sales in the Helsinki region decreased by 3.7 per cent compared with the previous year. The development remains weak, although the sharp decrease in sales seen during the very bleak second quarter slowed down towards the end of the year. According to the most recent data from Statistics Finland concerning all of Finland, trade turnover is set to increase slightly in January 2021 compared with the previous year. This could also promise a positive turn for the Helsinki region.
